A few weeks ago my husband and I decided on a last minute trip to Edinburgh from NYC. My husband is a big whisky fan and I wanted to surprise him with a visit to some distilleries, as well as a little exploration of Scotland. I reached out to Scottish Routes and luckily they were able to accommodate us with a private day tour on just a few days notice. It was very lucky for us. We had an amazing day!!
With a few short email exchanges, Will put together the perfect day for us. It was a great combo of culture, history and whisky. Will was with us for the day. He arrived early and was bright and cheerful from the start. Will was a fountain of information during the day stopping at various points along the drive for photo ops and historical/cultural info. He also knew a ton about whisky :) It was a great balance and he was really easy to talk with and seemed genuinely passionate about his country, it's history and it's culture and whisky.
We fell in love with Scotland that weekend, thanks in part to our experience with Will, and left already trying to plan a return, longer visit. We will definitely contact Will once we get our plan together. I highly recommend Scottish Routes for a great touring experience.
oh, and if you do tour with SR, ask them to take you to Doune Castle. Will took us there and we loved it. We returned to Edinburgh and, after visiting Edinburgh Castle, decided we preferred Doune.
